New York- Hours after raising the issue of Kashmir in his address to the UN General Assembly, Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif sent good wishes to his Indian counterpart Narendra Modi.

"(I want to send) message of good wishes," Sharif told a news agency when asked if he had any message to Modi who landed in New York a few hours ago. He was coming out of a meeting at UN after a meeting with the US Vice President Joe Biden. However, Sharif did not respond to questions if he would like to meet Modi in New York.

In the UN General Assembly, Sharif said the "core issue" of Jammu and Kashmir has to be resolved. He pushed for a plebiscite in Kashmir. He also blamed India for the calling off of bilateral foreign secretary-level talks last month.
